Lactoferrin is a versatile substance found in milk that plays an important role in the response of the immune system. It can help promote the beneficial growth of bacterial flora in the intestines. Therefore, supplementing it helps support both immune health and the gastrointestinal tract at the same time. Lactoferrin also promotes and supports natural resistance, provides protection for healthy cells and modulates immune function, as well as levels of anti-inflammatory responses.
The immune system is made up of cells, tissues and organs that act in the organism’s defense against the harmful effects of external microorganisms. The supplements indicated for immunity act as strengthening agents of this system, increasing the antibodies production and, consequently, its defense activity.
Lactoferrin modulates the immune system by promoting the proliferation and activation of immune cells.
When taken in high doses, Lactoferrin may cause gastrointestinal problems.
